QUOTE (Sulzerman @ 20 Mar 2008, 07:42) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>One thing that has always struck me, is how steam locomotive design converged during the Second World War.
If you look at the German Br52 Kreigslok, especially the one without smoke deflectors, then compare it to the British WD 2-8-0 and 2-10-0, and the USRA 2-8-0. To me they are all remarkably similar. Of course they were all designed at about the same time and for the same purpose, but in three different countries, one of which was on the other side. I find it interesting that the designers all reached the same conclusions.



Very true indeed. Here is a Beyer-Peacock UK 2-10-0 very similar to DRG class 50.
